That's out of my league, but can't find a disk by uuid?  Hd failure or
system decided to reformat?  I'd hate to break it to her, but that is my
absolutely imperfect opinion on the situation.

Is anyone helping Cheryl? I live out of the area. She lives in the NE 
area of SA and the reason she got into an upgrade is she is nearly blind 
and has just undergone a severe bout with Lupas. I would try to help but 
I dunno what to do to help her never having gone tru this. She can 
follow on the phone with someone leading her out of the failed upgrade.
Thanks Herb
